Not getting NHL13. Demo didn't impress me enough. I blame the developers who decided a 5min demo was good and not allowing me to play the only gametype i like playing BAP.

I'm going to hold off buying it until October. I dunno why.

Well, I'll at least try. I'll probably cave before the players.

NHL 13 EASHL is so good. So many glitchers and ice dancers complaining I love it.

When I do get it I'll probably play some offline BAP first. Just to get used to the new goalie mechanics before I get glitchfested on.

What's different about it that those people are miserable? Or have they just not learned the glitches yet?

The new skating engine along with them capping attributes and starting your overall so low..before adding your starting attributes you are a 46 overall and play your first game about a 55. I'm at pro 2 and am only a 62.

But yeah the biggest part is the skating engine its so hard to do ANYTHING in stride you have to pretty much glide to make accurate passes and recieve passes... sure you get lucky from time to time but it's rare. Also the goalies are SO much better there seems to be no go to move on breakaways....cross crease 1 timers are mostly gone you really need to make a great pass to beat the goalie on those.

The saves themselves OMG some of the things they pull... my team was in OT and i got a cross crease over to my buddy and the goalie dropped to his belly and pulled the scorpion save Marty did to Gaborik in the playoffs...watching the goalies it really looks like they just made the goalies based off him. It's so fun to watch.

All sounds like great news to me. I'm actually looking forward to this for once.

Now if only rhodes could fix his connection at school. He would love these developments

No cross crease? I'll never get an assist again.

Yes you will. With the cross crease thing not working, I'll stop being the playmaker and dishing the puck everywhere. I'll learn to become a sharp shooter and let you get assists by passing me the puck and getting the **** out of my way. Everyone wins!

like hell

i officially can't play online, so there's that. i may be spending nights at home more often for a while for unrelated reasons, in which case i could play eashl then, but i won't be able to be the heart and soul of the team anymore. not that our team had a heart or a soul by the end anyway so maybe it's no big loss. i can get to the join a team screen in eashl drop ins, but it won't let me play. i'm hoping this means i can still play gm connected and i'll just have to sim all my games but who knows.

Love the new skating mechanic. Changes the game in a lot of good ways. Love the fact that they capped the limits for EASHL.

Literally the only thing I hate about the game so far is the fact that guys are trying to cheese where they unleash a crappy backhand from the boards low to the other side of the crease and the goalies pop out heinous rebounds fairly regularly. Already encountered a few guys who do it all game long. Should be an easy fix for EA, though, since it was a problem in 11 and was removed for 12.

They took the cross crease out by making player's hand-eye a joke. From what I played in the demo one timers are nearly impossible to complete. It's absolutely awful.

I hate that a freaking Flyer is on the cover. Better than having the Queen, but it still sucks.

When I downloaded the demo, i played the quick game and the repeat history thing. I'm pretty good at NHL...I couldn't score to save my life D: The goalies would make ridiculous saves that they'd never make in the older games. I guess the time of "stupid" goalies is over in the game. I'm sorta tired of knowing I'm going to score before I actually do because the goalie just doesn't move enough...

Has anyone played BeAPro yet? Have they made AI players smarter or do they still do completely boneheaded plays? Its quite annoying when a game takes forever because the AI won't stop shooting the puck right into the goalie off the draw...and your teammates blindly throw the puck out of the defensive zone on the penalty kill even when they're not pressured and you're calling for the puck.
